The fourth of eight related documents, this booklet is part of a series of papers presented at the 1978 National Right to Read Conference examining issues and problems in literacy. In an examination of the role of private business in efforts to increase literacy, each of the three papers in this booklet discusses a specific program sponsored and funded by a large private corporation, and each includes an account of the program's inception and development, target population and mode of recruitment, staffing, curriculum and characteristic activities, and perceived benefits. The three corporations discussed in the papers are Polaroid Corporation, New York Insurance Company, and Montgomery Ward and Company. (HTH)
